This park of nature is surrounded by mountains and covers the area of more than 7,500 hectares. It is situated at an altitude that ranges from 760 up to 1,322 meters. 

The park is home to 130 bird species, among which the griffon vulture is the most popular. (It is one of the two vulture species left in Serbia.) This is where the bird was saved from extinction.

The Uvac Reserve is the second largest of its kind in Europe and by far the largest in Balkans.
